From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), An Shen Bu Xin Wan calms the Heart and spirit and restores normal sleep rhythm by nourishing Heart Yin and blood while anchoring hyperactive Liver Yang (caused by deficient Heart blood). When blood is insufficient and therefore fails to nourish the Shen (spirit) which is said to be housed in the heart, palpitations and insomnia are common symptoms. An Shen Bu Xin Wan may also be used for depression, dizziness, deafness and tinnitus (ringing in the ears).†
Palpitations may or may not represent a true cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart beat). An abnormal heart beat can be the sign of a serious and potentially life threatening condition. Consult your physician before taking this or any other supplement for palpitations.
An Shen Bu Xin Wan is composed of 10 medicinal Chinese herbs that nourish Yin and blood, calm the Shen (spirit), clear heat and anchor Yang.
Dan Shen (Salvia root) regulates blood circulation, calms the Shen and dispels heat from the Heart. Dan Shen also nourishes blood to treat palpitations and insomnia. Studies have shown Dan Shen to have a marked sedative effect.2 Shou Wu Teng (Polygonum vine), also known as Ye Jiao Teng, nourishes the Heart and calms the Shen due to general blood deficiency while also clearing the meridian pathways.
Di Huang (Rehmannia root) is a powerful Yin tonic used to nourish the blood of the Heart and also treats insomnia and palpitations.
Wu Wei Zi (Schisandra fruit) calms the heart and Shen, treats anxiety and insomnia with dream disturbed sleep (which are signs of Yin and blood failing to nourish the heart). Tu Si Zi (Cuscuta seed) tonifies Kidney Yin and Yang and is combined with Wu Wei Zi to reduce the occurrence of frequent dreaming. Nu Zhen Zi (Glossy Privet fruit) clears heat from Yin deficiency and is a relatively mild tonic useful for dizziness and tinnitus. When combined with Wu Wei Zi, it is very useful for night sweats. Mo Han Lian, also known as Han Lian Cao (Eclipta) nourishes Yin and clears heat from the blood. It is often paired with Nu Zhen Zi for Liver and Kidney Yin deficiency.
Shi Chang Pu (Acorus) opens the orifices and calms the Shen. Shi Chang Pu is often used for tinnitus, deafness and dizziness. Zhen Zhu Mu (Pearl shell) calms the Liver and anchors Yang, which can become hyperascendant due to Liver blood deficiency. Zhen Zhu Mu is used for tinnitus, deafness, dizziness, irritability, insomnia, palpitations and mania. Zhen Zhu Mu also clears Heart fire when combined with Shi Chang Pu.
He Huan Pi (Albizia Bark) calms the Shen and relieves Liver Qi stagnation (constraint).
